Scientific studies have consistently shown that kids do best with traditional families, aka intact biological families. That is no surprise, as that has been the conventional wisdom for centuries. But for the last ten years, leftist pro-LGBT professors have been saying otherwise, without evidence.
As mentioned below, a new study showed again that kids do better with natural parents. The leftists are not trying to censor the authors.
200 PhDs and MDs have signed a letter to complain about the truth being published without pro-LGBT spin:
We urge you to publicly disclose the reasons for both the expedited peer review process of this clearly controversial paper and the choice of commentators invited to submit critiques. We further request that you invite scholars with specific expertise in LGBT parenting issues to submit a detailed critique of the paper and accompanying commentaries for publication in the next issue of the journal.Most of the signers are just sociologists with an interest in LGBT issues. If they were real scientists who had a legitimate disagreement, they would explain why the paper is wrong or do a better study.
I am sure that they would like to make the point that, under ideal conditions, lesbians and gays can make satisfactory adoptive parents. I am sure that is true. But if we are to adopt laws and policies that promote LGBT parenting, then we should look at data on how well it works in practice, and stop pretending that LGBT parents do as well as natural parents. All of the evidence favors natural parents.
